PROGRESS. My Friend Mikey came by and Got the intercooler pipes welded up and added the bov, IAT, and wastegate to the respective pipes. Painted/wrapped the booger hook and got the turbo installed with gaskets and ready to party.
And i finally broke down and ordered the terminator x max and injectors for it.
got some vacuum bits arriving tomorrow that im going to try and get all routed up so i can start it up this weekend for the first time with the spinny boi on it. Once i verify that all works and no leaks ill rip out the harness/ecu and replace it all with the holley.
finished up the exhaust fabrication, modified the bumper to fit the intercooler, removed the oem ecu/harness, swapped in the new injectors and started wiring the holley up. also picked up some new rims. the set on the car now have shanked lugs with offset washers and they are super frustrating to take on and off. so i bought some jegs stars with conical seats and they work way better lol.
worked on some tuning on it saturday at my friends place. its a ripper.
then we swapped wg springs and it got up to 9 psi but we had lots of issues with the fuel system.
the wiring into the tank was undersized (totally my fault) and melted, shorted to ground. so we dropped the tank and rewired all the way to the pump. but then the regulator wasnt holding reliable pressure. so i need to fix that. but it ran under boost!
